This issue of Law, Democracy & Development covers a range of topics that are pertinent to our central theme: the promotion of democracy - above all through the protection of fundamental rights - and socio-economic development. Some articles focus on the protection of the rights of vulnerable groups in society; others deal with broader questions ranging from the operation of governmental structures to the manner in which we understand our apartheid past (and, consequently, the lessons we learn for the future). Still others focus on the protection of fundamental rights and the maintenance of democracy in other parts of Southern Africa.
